Cancer Immunology

Session 04 on Cancer Immunology:

Cancer Immunology is the medical science that studies the interactions between the immune system and cancer cells. The immune system plays a critical role in detecting and eliminating cancer cells, but cancer cells can evade immune surveillance and grow uncontrollably. Cancer Immunology seeks to understand how the immune system can be activated and harnessed to effectively target and destroy cancer cells.

Research in Cancer Immunology focuses on several areas, including the identification of tumor antigens, the development of cancer vaccines and immunotherapies, and the study of the tumor microenvironment and immune cell infiltrates. Recent advances in Cancer Immunology have led to the development of several FDA-approved immunotherapies, such as immune checkpoint inhibitors and CAR-T cell therapies, that have revolutionized cancer treatment and improved patient outcomes.
